Itinerary

Day 1

Pick up at 06:30hours and proceed to Eastern Uganda. Mt. Elgon is located near Mbale on the Eastern border with Kenya. Mbale lies 3-4 hours from Kampala along a good tarmac road.
The trailhead at Budadiri, 20km from Mbale is accessible by public transport. Mt. Elgon is a 4,321m high extinct volcano which in prehistoric times stood taller than Kilimanjaro does today. Although the mountain straddles the Kenyan border, its loftiest peak, Wagagai, lies within Uganda and is best ascended from the Ugandan side.
Mt. Elgon is an important watershed, and its slopes support a rich variety of altitudinal vegetation zones ranging from montane forest to high open moorland studded with the other-worldly giant lobelia and groundsel plants.
Spectacular scenery is the main attraction for hikers on this often neglected undemanding mountain, but there is also a variety of forest monkeys and small antelope, along with elephant and buffalo. A checklist topping 300 birds includes many species not recorded elsewhere in Uganda.
Proceed to Budadiri and prepare for the climb: Camping at Bunamasifu (1250m). Lunch and dinner.
